Today, following his intriguing new Boiler Room documentary, New York City rap-poet Wiki is back with a new accompanying video for “Stickball.” The song has become one of the standouts from Wiki’s recently released debut album, No Mountains in Manhattan, and finds the Ratking frontman playing a game of stickball with his crew in the streets of downtown Manhattan.

Directed by Matt Lubansky, the video is shot entirely in monochrome and features some cameos from a few of his New York City rap cronies including Remy Banks, Lansky Jones and Slick Boy amongst others. Watch above and revisit his latest No Mountains in Manhattan album via XL Recordings.
